Planetstorm is an objective based assault-style game played in two theaters, in space, and on the ground. in space you must engage fleets of massive warships, controlling vehicles in first person from ship interiors or launching fighters to engage in spectacular dogfights. Planetside you must fight either as attacker or defender, using an array of vehicles and weapons to overcome the enemy.

And here it is! Our first release and entry for Phase 2 of the Make Something Unreal Competition.
This release is horribly rushed, and should not be viewed as anything but a statement of intent from the Planetstorm team - a taste of what is to come.
We considered holding off till phase 3 of the MSUC but we wanted to release because we owe our community for their faith, and we owe our team for their hard work. this version is *amusing* at best, especially on the space gametypes, but things do work. You can fly the ships, shoot the guns, marvel at the scenery etc.

The Planetstorm website is also now online. You can visit the site for the download links, media, and information on our universe.
Inquiries and tech support questions will now be answered in the Planetstorm Forums. Please be civil and respectful and we will try our best to help you. :)
Unfortunately, permanent game servers will still be unavailable because of the bugginess of the game, which would require the constant attention of an administrator, a task none of us can handle at the moment. But rest assured, you can still set up your own online servers among your friends.
Thank you so much for all the support we had in the last few months. We're still only just beginning, so hang on tight, folks. :)
